This laptop was donated to my church for missionary work.  It was brought to me so I could de-crypt it. and re-format it. It has Win 10 Pro. They were not given any info on password or recovery key on the Bitlocker encryption.

Since it is encrypted, I cannot boot a windows 10 iso dvd to re-format....it says drive is locked....

I have Googled it and it seems it is possible to use diskpart to reformat it but I need input to run this utility...any help would be appreciated..
